food truck rendezvous

Ever since I tried a Cool Haus ice cream sandwich in New York over the summer, I’d been daydreaming about their fabulous sammies. Needless to say, the instant I found out they had opened a food truck here in Miami, I made plans to go.
Quino and I had an interesting little adventure trying to find this place a few weeks ago. They had parked their truck behind a hip art gallery in the Design District so we couldn't even see it. We only realized where it was after we saw people lined up around the block to get into this little side door. Hipster much?

Once we got inside, we devoured a delish grilled cheese from Ms. Cheezious (one of my other favorite food trucks) before grabbing a much-anticipated chocolate cookie and salted caramel ice cream sandwich from Cool Haus. It definitely didn't disappoint.

Unfortunately, I didn’t have my camera on me but thanks to my new iPhone and the instagram app, the few pictures I took still look cool.

let the games begin

Ok, I'll be honest. I don't read very much. It isn't for a lack of trying, but I always read before bed. And since I'm such a fan of sleeping, it takes me forever to get through a book when I'm only reading about a chapter a night.
The Hunger Games was a total exception to this norm. I blew through this fantastic book in 4 days over the summer. It really surprised me considering the concept is a bit out there, but my god was it amazing!
They finally released the trailer for the movie and so far, it definitely looks like its going to the book justice. I can't wait to see it! Too bad it doesn't come out until late March.

Are you ready for the games? Check out the trailer and see for yourself.

fall frolics

This last month has been great but I've been so swamped that I haven't had time to post anything. Of course I've been taking pictures of everything though so here's some of the stuff I've been up to lately. From pumpkin carving for the first time in a decade to tailgating and stocking up on lipsticks, I've definitely been keeping busy. 
Cavalli/Blumarine Fashion Show at the Setai with B:
My Birthday Surprise for Quino: 
An afternoon spent jet-skiing in the Keys
Pumpkin Carving:
Much more labor intensive than I recall it being when I was a kid... clearly I must have made my mom do the hard parts for me.I made the cat pumpkin (the easy way out, let's be honest) while Brandy tackled what turned out to be an amazing Minnie Mouse
Multiple Costumes: 
Black Swan for a night out with the girls. 
Kourtney Kardash & Scott Disick for the grove with Quino
New Treats for Myself:
A few too many M.A.C lipsticks (I got Mocha, Snob and Plumful)
I also finally caved and bought my first iPhone (complete with a DVF cover, of course)
